The 2nd Annual Bloggiesta is starting now. Hosted by Maw Books. This 72 hour event will be a great opportunity to catch up on blog renovations and other items. Of course, I am working today so it’s hard to tell how much time I will be able to spend working on my blog.
Never fear – I will find things to do. For starters, my 2009 and December review posts have not even been started or posted. That is my first goal.
After that I will review my blog and start my list of items. I’m thinking of some of the following:
- Blogroll with favorite bloggers
- Add all social marketing links
- 2009 Review
- December Review
- Challenge Update
- Go through TBR list and those not added in
- Set reading and blogging goals for the year
- Clean up sidebars
A more detailed list to come.
I haven’t had a chance until now to do my wrap up post for this weekends BLOGGIESTA! It has been a busy couple of days but I’m finally getting around it.
My biggest goal was to write some movie reviews and catch up. While I wrote 18 reviews of movies and TV shows, it was nowhere near close to what I wanted to write. I can’t imagine how many I had to write but I never realized how long it would take to write them and how bored I may get doing so.
Overall I completed:
- Movie/TV Reviews: 18
- Book Reviews: 2
- Mini-Challenges: 3 (Bookish Ruth, Book Lady, Beth Fish Reads)
- Updated challenge pages for 2 reviews
- Updated my LibraryThing reviews
- Added a currently reading and up next box to my sidebar
- Added a weekly events box to the sidebar to be updated soon
- Wrote a new post to publish another day involving a new perpetual challenge I created for myself
- Updated a key page (my TBR list) to look more alphabetized and organized
- Officially signed up for the Sookie Stackhouse Challenge, with some of my own rules
- Created a new event at my other blog – Baking 101
- Cleaned up my starred items in google reader – pretty much all that’s left are articles involving True Blood and I’m too tired to read them all
- Rejoined the Weekly Geek group – here
It feels like a lot and a little all at the same time. I’m always pretty on top of things with my book blog so it was more for fun. I think I only spent about 8 hours or so playing around with things so not nearly as much time as other people. Hopefully next time I will be more prepared.
Lucky #7 will be my last post for the festivities. My official wrap-up post will be done tomorrow. I’m just too exhausted to complete everything and feel like had I had more time I would have accomplished more in regards to my movie reviews, but since I have that organized I will probably continue to do quick groupings and get a chunk knocked off.
That being said, I did get some more accomplished in my last hour.
- officially signed up for the Sookie Stackhouse Challenge, with some of my own rules
- created a new event at my other blog – Baking 101
- cleaned up my starred items in google reader – pretty much all that’s left are articles involving True Blood and I’m too tired to read them all

I think that’s all for the night. I’ll do a full roundup in the morning. Had lots of fun.
